Joanne Haynes has a secret: that is not her real name. And there’s more. Her flat’s not hers. Her cats aren’t hers. Even her hair isn’t really hers.

Nor is she any of the other women she pretends to be. Not the best-selling romance novelist who gets her morning snack from the doughnut van on the seafront. Nor the pregnant woman in the dental surgery. Nor the chemo patient in the supermarket for whom the cashier feels ever so sorry. They’re all just alibis. In fact, the only thing that’s real about

Joanne is that nobody can know who she really is. But someone has got too close. It looks like her alibis have begun to run out…

The scintillating new thriller from C J Skuse, author of the acclaimed SWEETPEA series, will have you sitting on the edge of your seat from page one!


Praise for THE ALIBI GIRL:

‘Crude, rude and certainly shocking, this darkly comic story … has the potential to become a cult classic.’

Geoffrey Wansell, The Daily Mail


An addictive, whammy of a read… I found it impossible to put down… Sweetpea is a wonderfully surprising novel, obvious, a

shock-fest, in your face… yet incredibly subtle and thought-provoking too. I loved it, I absolutely loved it.’

Liz Robinson, Lovereading Review
